As NRLC convention director Jacki Ragan explained yesterday, we are only weeks away from the pro-life educational event of the year: the annual NRL convention which this year is being held in Louisville June 26-28.

In addition to all the workshops and general sessions and Prayer Breakfast and closing Banquet, pro-lifers should not miss the annual meeting of the Association for Interdisciplinary Research in Values and Social Change, which is open to the public, and which takes place the night before the convention begins.

The speakers will address three inter-related topics which are both current and very important:

The Myth that Abortion is Safer than Childbirth;

The Relative Safety of Abortion vs. Childbirth: A Focus on

Psychological Morbidity and Mortality; and

The Mis-Use of the Concept of “Safe Abortion” in the

International Debate over Women’s Health.


Donna Harrison, M.D.

And the speakers are not only committed pro-lifers, but also experts, in every sense of the term. They are
